The results from each assignment will be presented throughout the semester. Oral comments will be given on the work performed during the presentation of each of the three assignments. Students can change their assignments until all three are submitted at the end of the semester. The portfolio is assessed as passed / failed and all sub-assignments must be passed. All aids allowed.

Postponed Assessment: March. If the students have a postponed assessment, new tasks will be defined.
